  • 20 grams Beeswax (about 3 Tablespoons of the whiter beads but you can use a white/yellow bar too)
  • 20 grams Cocoa Butter or Coconut Oil about 2 Tablespoons
  • 45 grams Sunflower Oil 1/4 cup
  • 8 drops Vitaman E oil 4 vitamin E oil tablets worth
  • 2 drops Rosemary essential oil
  • 12 drops Peppermint essential oil
  • 1 drop Lanolin pea sized


  • Measure out all your ingredients except essential oils into a heat friendly cup or pan. You can use a glass dish in the microwave also. I cut open the little Vitamin E tablets and squeezed the good stuff into the cup.
  • Next, melt all the ingredients, and stir. The beeswax seemed to take the longest to melt, but it was all melted within a couple of minutes.
  • Once it's all melted add your essential oils and mix it up.
  • Then test it out, to make sure it has the flavor you want by letting a tiny bit cool on your finger. Rub it on your lips and check if its just right. If you feel it needs more mint or other flavorings, add more!
  • Then use a dropper to add the melted goodness into chapstick tubes. (If it cools too quickly before you’re done filling your tubes, just pop it in the microwave till it melts again.)
  • Then voila! You are done. Just let them all cool.
